General Medicine


The Department of General Medicine was additionally established with the enforcement of the new specialist system in April 2018.
One of the reasons for its establishment is the growing need for comprehensive medical care in response to the increasing number of elderly individuals with multiple comorbidities, such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and cerebrovascular disease.
To meet these needs, our hospital reopened inpatient care at the Department of General Medicine in 2022. In addition to providing patients with comprehensive and continuous medical care, we will provide general medical care that is more closely tailored to their diversifying lifestyles. In addition, we plan to start a General Medicine Specialist Training Program in April 2023.


We live our daily lives while experiencing a lot of stress in various social backgrounds, such as diversified lifestyles and values, declining birthrates, and an aging society. Having a physical disorder in addition to these factors may lead to increased stress and worry.
The General Medicine not only provides appropriate diagnosis and treatment for these patients but also aims to provide medical care while addressing their pain and anxiety.


Comprehensive and Seamless Medical Care

The General Medicine is responsible for the care of general outpatients as well as inpatients.
For both outpatients and inpatients, we determines the final treatment policy in consultation with the patient and their family, and, if necessary, by working with organ-specific departments.
Our department is staffed by qualified physicians, including specialists in general internal medicine, cardiovascular medicine, and cancer pharmacotherapy, as well as supervising physicians in geriatrics and general hospital medicine.
In 2022, medical oncologists with experience in general medicine joined the department, enabling it to accept outpatients from the Outpatient Medical Oncology. With some of our physicians having extensive overseas experience, we are dedicated not only to medical practice but also to education.
